What is the difference between Brain Washing and Understanding (moved from Freethinking Anonymous)
What is the difference between brain washing and understanding?
How does it differ inside one's head? Give your best explanation.
Two person might say the same thing, for example: Electron has negative charge or US GDP is $13 trillion
One might be just spitting out a rote data and another person might be saying these with "understanding".
Both statements are coming out of respective heads. Then what is the differnece in the mind?
I am trying to show that many atheists have FAITH. They just do not have faith in god.
In this connection the Questin of Free Will is the most important one.
Please do not get offended. I am not trying to put down anyone. I am just testing my ideas and we all will learn from each other in the process.
